California Amputation Injury Attorneys

Limb loss is catastrophic. It affects every area of a person’s life. And when a victim loses a limb due to someone else’s negligence, it’s even more distressing. At the May Firm, we care about getting amputation victims the justice they deserve.

Amputation Injuries

An amputation is the loss of a limb, such as your arm or leg. Amputations generally occur in one of two ways: surgical or traumatic. A surgical amputation is carried out at the hands of a skilled surgeon in the operating room and can be the result of any number of causes.

Surgical amputations may occur due to a serious infection of the limb or when a serious injury will not heal. It can have a more serious impact on your quality of life than an accidental amputation.

Traumatic amputations occur when a limb is severed from the body during an accident. People who work on machines, such as toolmakers, are at a particularly high risk of losing a finger or a hand every day at work.

Causes of Amputation Injuries

Traumatic amputations most commonly occur in serious accidents, such as car wrecks that involve ejection. While riding in a car or truck, you typically have a little more protection than if you were riding a motorcycle. You have seat belts, airbags, and a dashboard and windshield to prevent you from being ejected from the vehicle.

Motorcycles, however, lack many of these features by design, and motorcyclists are typically ejected during an accident. This significantly increases their chances of a traumatic amputation. Amputations on California roadways are frighteningly common, especially for motorcyclists.

Amputations rarely happen without fault. Machine operators are trained to operate their machines safely, so if they lose a finger, it’s likely because something went wrong with the machine. In that case, the manufacturer of the machine could be held liable for their injuries. If someone is ejected from their vehicle and suffers an amputation injury in an accident that they did not cause, they could be entitled to compensation from the person who was responsible for the collision.

Unfortunately, the litigation process to ensure that an amputation injury victim is able to recover the compensation that they deserve can be lengthy and stressful.

If you lost a limb in an accident that wasn’t your fault, the amputation injury attorneys at the May Firm are here to help! We specialize in recovery for amputation injuries in California. Contact our San Jose amputation lawyers today.

The Consequences of Amputation Injuries

As Los Angeles amputation injury lawyers, we know the impact of limb loss can be staggering.

Medical Issues

Limb loss, whether it’s surgically or by accident, is medically catastrophic. You may need to learn to walk again, or use prosthetics or a wheelchair. You may struggle to perform other basic daily tasks again.

And in some cases, you may develop phantom limb syndrome. This is a distressing, painful, and complex condition to manage.

Psychological Impact

Amputations can have a profound psychological impact. The trauma itself is mentally draining, and the rehab can be exhausting. You may not feel like yourself anymore, and the lingering medical side effects can be distressing.

You may also develop self-esteem and body image issues after limb loss. Such concerns can seriously diminish your wellbeing. It’s not uncommon for individuals to become more withdrawn or develop anxiety and depression.

Return to Work

Limb loss can have severe consequences for a victim’s career prospects. Worryingly, a third of individuals with a work-related amputation injury don’t return to work. And if they do return, then they may be unable to do the same job as before.

Losing a limb threatens your quality of life. Our amputation injury lawyers will do everything possible to help you move forward.

Making an Amputation Injury Claim

Amputation lawsuits are a type of personal injury claim. Therefore, you must prove a few facts to make a successful case. You must show that:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care e.g. employer, driver
  • This person breached their duty by behaving negligently or recklessly
  • You suffered an amputation injury
  • The amputation is a direct result of the other person’s negligence

An amputation injury case is highly complex. It may be possible to settle outside of the courtroom, but some cases do go to trial. This is because trial is sometimes the only way to secure the maximum amount of damages a client deserves.

Our Los Angeles amputation lawyers will evaluate your claim and determine how best to proceed.
